Wow! That is a lot of 9s! What country was your CPU chip manufactured
in? (assuming you didn't wire your own from transistors you baked
from sand yourself...).

I keep some low-care services running on my VPS, such as a minetest
server, as well as my DNS server and a few other things (gotta get
value for money from that 25GB of SSD and 1GB RAM...).

Then I use a VPN to send traffic for higher-care services to servers
running at home. Not sure that the logs on those servers are 11 9's
secure, but likely much harder to get at than any logs on the VPS.

As for CC details, I use the same one to pay for my VPS as I use for
my NBN connection. Not sure I trust either more than the other...
